Lady Madeline Dalton (on the back of the book her last name was given as Donbigh, as stated in the other reviews, but throughout the book her name was Dalton) has a problem: a mad gentleman stalker whom no one seems to believe is dangerous except her. So she goes to Robinson Hollister, the eccentric Earl of Rosegoode, who runs a protection agency. Despite past misunderstandings and bitterness between them due to an aborted courtship and Lady Madeline's crying off from her engagement to Robinson's late older brother, he agrees to act as her protector until she is out of danger.
Once they are on the run together, they discover they actually like one another, not to mention their strong mutual attraction. Soon the misunderstandings between them are cleared up, and they begin to tentatively renew their friendship, while hiding out and trying to convince Lady Madeline's stalker that she will never marry him.
I really enjoyed this one. The adventure was great. Also the characters were interesting and complex enough to be believeable.
This was a good, fast read and I am glad I picked it up!
